Horrible Halloween Minis 2- Witch and Rock Muppets

The next installment of scary Halloweenish minis is here! This one is from the USX line of modern minis, I forget the actual name but it's something like "...Cult Leader." I prefer to think of her as a "Modern Urban Goth Witch."

I couldn't get a good shot of the back of the book- it has mean 'living' faces on each cover (with glowing eyes). This is a pretty good shot of the inside with whatever spell she's weaving...

And as a bonus, 2 To-Tanem Spearmen conversions. The first is a plain TT warrior who has a nice hat and the second is a TT Spear Standard bearer with the standard replaced with a spear. Both the spears are from the old Warhammer plastic Skeleton box set. My To-Tanem Spears are going to be a mixed equipment unit (like most of my units) because I like the feel of a group of individuals for most of my WarGods troops...

Next Unit Contest 2- Heirakonpolis Archers- Standard and Musician

This is a break from the "Horrible Halloween Minis" thing to bring you the latest figs for the Next Unit Contest 2. The Standard and Musician for the Heirakonpolis-themed Asar Archers.

I've got a handful of Warhawks (not enough for a full unit) and the musician is one of them. I figured since the Archer Unit is going to be Heirakonpolis-themed that a guy with a falcon helmet was a good idea for the musician.

For the Standard, I took the top from the female Basti MoW's staff and put it in place of the standard Asar standard (it seems a little too big to me). So now we've got a Scarab Standard for the Archers. Even though this guy looks good and fits the theme of the unit, he's probably going to be a floater once I finish an Archer chick with a standard.

This brings the unit total to 8 leaving 4 more to reach our goal! I need to go paint now...
